Autumn leaf mandalas 

I had fun collecting and sorting these freshly fallen autumn leaves into mandalas. I did this on a patio on a windy day in upstate New York, so they were quite ephemeral–scattering away moments after I took photos. Tree species include hornbeam, sugar maple and Norway maple, mulberry, tulip, sassafras, and white oak.

Happy Samhain to all those who celebrate! Y feliz dia de Los Muertos, por cierto.
